Partner with Us
We at SCOUTS New Zealand are always on the lookout for new partnerships. Our aim is to partner with like-minded organisations who share our strong values of Have Respect, Do What is Right and Be Positive. We want to tailor our partnerships to ensure they are both sustainable and mutually beneficial. Through SCOUTS New Zealand companies have the opportunity to speak to and interact with approximately 15,000 youth and their families as well as over 5000 volunteers. In an ever more competitive market, companies are striving to differentiate themselves. Partnering with a well respected and long standing charitable organisation such as SCOUTS could be just the edge you need.
We have recently changed the way we work with our partners to ensure we are as flexible as possible to work with a variety of organisations in a variety of ways. We currently have two types of partnerships - Community and Programme. To find out more about how to partner with us, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org – the possibilities are endless!
Ports of Auckland
Port of Auckland is currently our biggest Community Partner. They contribute generously to ensure Scouting is well supported in the Auckland region.

Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL)
UL are our largest Programme Partner. Through this partnership SCOUTS New Zealand have access to the world class Safety Smart® programme which provides quality, on message DVDs and take home material for our Keas, Cubs and Scouts across the country. Safety Smart® covers a wide range of relevant subjects, one of which will be included in the SCOUTS National Programme on an annual basis.
‘It is our hope that the relationship will continue to develop, spreading other safety messages to Keas, Cubs and Scouts throughout New Zealand in future years.’

Champion Freight are our newest Programme Partner. As a Kiwi owned freight forwarding company that specialises in sea freight, they have pledged to offset their carbon footprint by planting 1 tree per container they ship. In order to do this they have partnered up with us and our teams across the country will take part in tree planting events over the coming years. Champion Freight will also sponsor our Scouts Conservation Badge thus encouraging more of our members to learn about and care for the bush that we as Scouts love so much.
‘We are delighted to partner with Scouts New Zealand to bring Trees for Containers to life, a unique programme which will see one native tree planted for every container the company exports’
